BoyleSports Feared Massacre As Irish Dominate Cheltenham
BoyleSports faced liabilities akin to those faced when Annie Power fell in the Mares’ Hurdle on an incredible day for the Irish at the Cheltenham Festival on Thursday.
Irish-trained horses claimed victory in six of the seven races on Day Three and Davy Russell’s treble had bookies running scared as a fourth win on either High School Days or Mall Dini would have triggered massive payouts.
Two BoyleSports customers cashed in on the Irish success when a County Louth punter bagged €33,565.62 by putting four of them into a Lucky 15, while a Dublin customer pocketed €22,335.48 from €2 each-way Lucky 15, also featuring four Irish winners.
The day was right in the balance for a long time and we were facing a massacre had Davy Russell bagged his fourth win of the day on High School Days…
with liabilities in the same ball park as Annie Power when she fell in the Mares’ Hurdle three years ago.
Gold Cup day is going to be a decisive day. With the Irish winners proving so popular with punters and such narrow margins between winning and losing, it’ll be a tight call on who comes out on top come close of play on Friday.
